Our First Gorgeous Giveaway

To celebrate our debut we thought it was about time to share the handmade goodness we've got going on here!  So welcome to our first giveaway, an amazing needle felted work of art by Marie of SoftEarthArt.



Koru Forest Folk
While walking in our native New Zealand forest, I was inspired by the beautiful Koru ferns, laid out on the forest floor.  KORU- The Koru is the Maori name given to the new unfurling fern frond and symbolizes new life, growth, strength and peace. They measure 6 inches tall.  Needle felted in pure New Zealand wool.
Cheers Marie
